Mirror, Mirror…

Some people amuse.  Others are a muse… by birth. The lady asked me for a poem to match her beautiful photograph.  This was the best, I could do.

Around the Corner

Mirror, Mirror...
by Michael Romani

There she was sitting beside the ocean
Restoring to me a wealth of emotion
Staring back into her beautiful reflection
Until, she cast her eyes in my direction

A gentle soul gone just a bit wild
A hint of purity that hadn't been defiled
Though she has come face to face with the world
And she has claws, they haven't been unfurled

I felt the urge to somehow keep her near me
To protect her and drink in her rarified beauty
Without a single word said, she filled my head
With a need to somehow be a better man instead

Instead of a lesser man of undeserved, ill intent
With a look in her eyes, we knew what this meant
She didn't want to label what we both felt
Disinclined to jinx the hand that we were dealt

The lady Virgo had met her creative Capricorn
There on that beautiful ocean side morn
And two hearts suddenly found their understanding
Without either of these being overly demanding

Wanting just to walk side by side with each other
Each finding peace and good company in one another
Realizing that no boxes or labels are really needed
When stars fall and they are justly heeded
